8 Manly Cocktails That are Good for You

These alcoholic drinks will make you feel like Don Draper with a better life expectancy.
Forget ordering screwdrivers and gin and tonics—today’s bar aficionado prefers a drink that takes just as long to make as it does to down. Powered in part by the popularity of shows like Boardwalk Empire and Mad Men, vintage cocktail bars are popping up all over, offering a sophisticated alternative to 10-cent wing night at your favorite watering hole.

For the health-conscious drinker, however, the question always remains: how healthy are these Don Draper-inspired drinks? Well, it’s what’s being mixed with your spirit of choice that determines its overall value to your health, so we enlisted Ian Present, co-owner of Dutch Kills and PKNY in New York City to select eight signature, healthy cocktails, as well as provide mixing instructions for making them yourself.
